This Coastal is a great boat with a lot of flexibility, from fishing to just enjoying the water on a sunset cruise. There is a raised bridgedeck that gets you up a higher to see clearly. Combined with the swivel helm and companion seats, deep walkaround decks, and big cockpit with in - floor fishboxes, she is an all around economic fishing and cruising vessel. The vessel is located at Harbortown Marina in Merritt Island, and if you purchase the boat you can keep the slip if you so choose. The owner also offers one month in the slip for free. Below is a commercial description, and while not everything is exactly the same, since there have been minor modifications, this description should give you a good feel for the boat. Description from Powerboat Guide: A versatile express fishing boat with dependable inboard power, the 280 Coastal was a good-selling boat for Wellcraft during her production years. Built on a solid fiberglass hull with a relatively wide 9'11" beam, the chief attribute of the 2800 Coastal (aside from an affordable price) remains her practical, space-efficient layout. Two in-deck fish boxes, fresh and raw water washdowns, Forward, the helm seat is mounted on an above-deck livewell, while the companion seat pod contains a tackle center with sink. The interior of the 280 Coastal, with its convertible dinette, enclosed head with shower, compact galley, and forward V-berths, is larger than expected considering her roomy cockpit and wide side decks. Updates in 1990 included restyled deckhouse windows and upgraded tackle centers. In 1994,the last year of production a dinette floorplan became standard. Among several engine choices, twin 260hp inboards cruise the 2800 Coastal in the low 20s and reach a top speed of about 30 knots.

On Board Electronics The boat comes with a VHF radio and a Lowrance Hook 5 GPS and fishfinder unit. The Hook 5 has the standard Lowrance CHIRP technology that is know as DownScan Imaging. Lowrance state it "wil give youa clear and complete view of the underwater environment beneath your boat." It features enhanced sonar sensitivity, improved and accurate target separation and superior noise rejection. Also according to Lowrance, this technology makes it easier across the board to recognize everything from baitfish to gamefish targets. A great addition that some units don't encompass is a built - in GPS antenna and distinctly proven navigation addins. Did you find that nice honey hole you had been told was in the vicinity?
